[Mono-dev] Feedback from trying to port ASP.NET 2.0 App

I've been trying to get an ASP.NET 2.0 app to run on mono recently.
Here's what I've run into, any comments would be appreciated.

- xsp2 doesn't recognise the 'Bin' dir, only a 'bin' dir. This caused
me much head scratching. VS creates 'Bin' (capitalized) dirs by
default. Could a change be made to support both?

- .Net 2 Configuration is broken, but I'm sure that's being worked on.
I just stubbed and #if'd this out for the time being.

- Mono seems to expect an Assembly attribute for lines like this:

<%@ Register TagPrefix="cc1" Namespace="My.NameSpace" %>

If I add an Assembly attribute, my code starts coming to life :)
However, this interfears with the ASP.NET 2.0 build model on Windows.
MS .NET 'automagically' builds these files and so the assembly name is
I'm stuck for an easy way to work around this.

Any ideas, or just wait for better ASP.NET 2.0 support?
